My intention in putting the stories together in an unplanned way was to suggest that all things -- stories, incidental sounds from the environment, and y extension, beings -- are related, and that this complexity is more evident when it is not oversimplified by an idea of relationship in one person's mind." - John Cage

Like a mushroom hunting trip full of unexpected pleasures, Iris Garden combines 22 of John Cage’s stories with 44 of William Gedney’s photographs (including several of the composer himself) with an ingenious design mirroring Cage’s concept of chance.
